(morgan) hold on. no, no, no. didn't let me finish. what a terrible idea. ew. go to bed. should he stay or should he go. happening now san francisco's board of supervisors poised to vote on the future of san francisco's suspended sheriff. good evening i'm julie haener. >> and i'm frank somerville. the vote on suspended sheriff is coming to an end tonight finally. we begin with heather holmes
10:01pm
who's been listening to the proceedings that are now on their 11th hour. >> reporter: frank i just came down from the second floor here at city hall and i can now tell you that we are minutes away from a decision in this headline grabbing case. right now each of the supervisors is stating on the record how he or she will vote. and right before i came down here it was one in favor of ousting ross mirkarimi, one against. all of this coming after supervisors heard from people and from attorneys on both sides of this case. >> the sheriff's misconduct was really quite serious. >> reporter: sherry kaiser told the supervisors tonight that their decision was easy. and that his guilty plea to
10:02pm
misdemeanor. >> to protect victims of domestic violence. >> reporter: but mirkarimi's attorney disagreed and said that the incident had nothing to do with the sheriff. and that the mayor went over his authority when he suspended the sheriff. the legal explanation didn't take long but public comment stretched on for hours tonight. with the sheriff's supporters showing up in force. >> we store what has been stolen from0s -- from ross and the voters that elected him. >> you notice it's about 40 or 50 to one at least in terms of four rosss reinstatement. >> reporter: while outnumbered, antidomestic activists argued that it would be a conflict of interest for mirkarimi to
10:03pm
resume his duty. >> i believe that public officials are trusted to hold the defendants responsibility. >> reporter: none of the 11 supervisors must vote in favor of many mirkarimi losing his job in order for him to lose his job. if the vote does happen during this newscast i will be sure to bring it to you live. i'm heather holmes, ktvu channel 2 news. our coverage picks up with debora villalon on the sheriff and major ed lee, debora. >> reporter: both men say they will be happy to see this over with tonight but that's all they agree on. as major lee keeps with his schedule, mirkarimi has been part of the spectacle. >> reporter: ross mirkarimi arrived with wife eliana and son theo announcing they had
10:04pm
just come from an outing to a pumpkin patch. a sheriff car clutched in his son's hand. >> he did not do the things he's accused of in these trumped up charges. >> reporter: in the early hours of testimony, overflow rooms were set up for spectators to watch the proceedings. and hundreds of people lined up to speak, most taking mirkarimi's side. >> i don't think it should be influenced one way or the other. >> reporter: the supervisors he says shouldn't be swayed by public opinion. >> reporter: just the facts. >> we all should be held to a higher standard, no question. i've never shied away from that but it should not be unevenly applied. >> reporter: major lee tonight strayed from city hall to open the city's new target store as the testimony churned on. >> i know i made the right decision. >> reporter: still firm on
10:05pm
firing the sheriff, lee says he hasn't counted heads and doesn't know if he has the votes among the supervisors. >> i refrain from doing that because it's not my responsibility to do it. i'm not looking at this as a political win or lose. >> reporter: if mirkarimi loses the vote tonight, there's talk that he'll go to court as his next step. but he tells me that his lost income and legal bills has left him destitute. debora villalon. >> eliana lopez was at his side throughout today's proceedings. she has long defended her husband and called the attempts to remove him from office, dirty politics. >> the real violence, i think the real assault that is happening here is from the mayor to the democracy. >> reporter: lopez says she and her husband have been overwhelmed and comforted from the support they've received from the people of san
10:06pm
francisco. and she hopes the supervisors hear the message from those supporters. let's break down the situation, we think that these seven supervisors right here will likely vote against ross mirkarimi. that leaves cristina olagi, john avalos, campos and mar as the swing votes. all of them are progressives like mirkarimi and all of them are up for reelection. if they vote against ross mirkarimi, that could potentially cost them votes from their progressive base. but if these four votes for mirkarimi, domestic violence advocates would be furious and they have been very vocal in their demand that mirkarimi lose his job. something else to think about here, cristina olagi she was appointed by mayor ed lee who of course started the proceedings to remove mirkarimi from office so that puts her in an awkward position as well. stay with ktvu for continuing coverage. our heather holmes is
10:07pm
monitoring these proceedings. waiting for the vote to happen. and we will bring it to you as soon as they take that vote. new at 10:00, a father and his 18 -month-old toddlers are safe tonight thanks to some fast acting good samaritans. witnesses say a man drove into the trader joe's parking lot at about 5:45 this evening with flames and smoke shooting out of his car. one person near by helped the driver escape while two women sprang into action, once they learned there was still babies in the backseat. >> couldn't get the door open so i had to pull this baby from the window. another lady grabbed the baby from the other side and pulled that one out. >> reporter: police say no one was hurt. but investigators are still trying to figure out what caused that car fire. alameda county district attorney issued a report saying that the shooting death of alan blufford by police was justifiable and that no charges are going to be filed against the officer. in the early morning hours of

that's the san mateo bridge. the cell is dying down. we're going to show you the motion of it in the last few hours. we're going to back it to san jose. right about here you can see in mountain view it's starting to develop. this is about 45 minutes ago. you can see the system as it moves north. you see it turning red. that's when it developed into a basically a thunderstorm. we had reports of thunder and lightning. very loud thunder. as we moved to the current time. you see how it's dissipating you see more red and less yellow. the system as it moves to san francisco is begining to die down but nothing before depositing some rain. the system is going to go this way over the next 30 minutes or so it'll move into san francisco. hard to say but most likely that one cell will die down but definitely waking some folks down on the peninsula. this is an unusual system or tough system to forecast.
10:50pm
we've been calling for rain for really the last few days. chance of rain, chance of rain. it's because this system keeps sitting offshore. looks like it's made a move to the south and east. that's what brought this activity. you can see it spinning around. the computer model wants to bring in more showers. here we are about 4:00 a.m. you can see some shower activity. very similar to what we saw. a little toward s era toga. this is at 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. as we get into the afternoon hours, boom see again right here. there's another chance for showers and thundershowers. the thundershowers is what worries me because of the timing and the chance of a lightning strike in the santa cruz mountains. this is 4:00 on wednesday. that's where this goes. looks like we have more scattered showers possible tonight. that one sell starting to -- one cell starting to die down. folks along the peninsula in

the south bay i've had reports of showers out in south moon bay. we will see showers in san francisco probably in the next 15 to 20 minutes i suspect from that cell that the lightning should be dying down. the forecast highs tomorrow then just like today. just not a bad day right, plenty of sunshine. a few high clouds. but that chance of a shower as you saw on the computer model is going to stay in the forecast as we saw tonight. 74 in napa, 70 in vallejo. 60 in richmond and mild temperatures very similar to what we had today. in the santa clara valley we had mild temperatures, 73 in gilroy. again this is unstable weather pattern. feels like san diego weather. where you get an isolated cell moving up and training up into the bay area. we don't often see systems like this. sort of unusual. with that said that one should be dying down. a few sprinkles in our
